John Dilnot (English, b. 1956)
Night Flight, 2013
John Dilnot created his Night Flight screen print over the course of six weeks, starting with a solid-black printed ground and adding layers of opaque color. The buildup of intense colors gives the work a strong physicality, he says. Imagery for the moths originated in found line drawings of specific species, although the resulting multicolor swarm in the night sky is perhaps an unnatural phenomenon. Dilnot also creates books, boxes, paintings, and other works, many of which examine humans’ relationship with nature. He has studied graphic design, fine art, and printmaking, and his artworks and bookworks can be found in galleries, museums, and private collections.
